Tottenham Hotspur boss Ange Postecoglou will be pleased with his side’s start to the season, with Spurs sat second in the Premier League table going into the international break. 

After a 2-2 draw against Brentford on the opening weekend of the campaign, the Lilywhites have since beaten Manchester United, Bournemouth and Burnley and sit second only to reigning champions Manchester City.

Postecoglou will also be boosted by the arrival of Brennan Johnson when domestic football returns, with the deadline day signing set to make his debut when Spurs face Sheffield United in a fortnight.

In the meantime, it appears that one of Tottenham’s most senior players could be on his way out of the club this week.

According to Football Insider, goalkeeper Hugo Lloris could depart the North London outfit to join a club in either Turkey or Saudi Arabia.

Lloris, 36, joined Spurs from French side Lyon back in 2012 and has since made 447 appearances for the club across all competitions.

The Frenchman captained Tottenham for several seasons, but fell out of favour towards the end of last term and isn’t part of Postecoglou’s plans.

Lloris hasn’t featured in a matchday squad so far this season

New signing Gugliemo Vicario and veteran Fraser Forster are both ahead of Lloris in the pecking order of ‘keepers at the club, and he is therefore expected to depart.

It is claimed that Lloris was close to completing a sensational return to boyhood club Nice on deadline day, but the move collapsed leaving his future uncertain.

With the transfer window in the majority of European countries shutting last week, Lloris may now be forced to look to Turkey or Saudi Arabia, where the deadlines are September 15 and September 7 respectively.

Lloris, who has kept more than 150 clean sheets for Spurs during his decade-long spell with the club, is contracted to Tottenham until next summer.
